The Man, the Myth, the Legend: Clint Eastwood
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Clint Eastwood added another starring role at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am — life saver.
Eastwood attended a volunteer party on the eve of the PGA Tour event when he noticed tournament director Steve John choking on a piece of cheese. The 83-year-old actor quickly performed the Heimlich maneuver Wednesday night at the Monterey Conference Center.
“I was drinking water and eating these little appetizers, threw down a piece of cheese and it just didn’t work,” John said Friday. “I was looking at him and couldn’t breathe. He recognized it immediately and saved my life.” By Candice Naranjo
San Francisco native and original Hollywood badass, Clint Eastwood, saving lives like it’s his job. If I saw someone choking to death, there’s no doubt, I would probably say “are you choking?”. After hearing no response, I wouldn’t know what the fuck to do, and probably watch the poor person choke to death. But NOW I do. Thank you sincerely, Mr. Eastwood. I’m practicing my heimlich maneuver right now on Betty (my blowup doll). I don’t think she likes it too much.
